No, the DRM drivers don't filter ExpressCard-attached GPUs when
registering with vga_switcheroo. They do filter Thunderbolt-
attached GPUs.

The ExpressCard 2.0 spec defines some ACPI stuff that *might* be
used to recognize root ports that are ExpressCard slots, but I'm
not sure how reliable that is. I don't have such a machine and
have no experience with it.

This is from the MacBookPro8,3 DSDT:

Device (RP04)
{
Name (_ADR, 0x001C0003)
OperationRegion (A1E0, PCI_Config, 0x19, 0x01)
Field (A1E0, ByteAcc, NoLock, Preserve)
{
SECB, 8
}

Device (EXCD)
{
Name (_ADR, 0x00)
Name (_SUN, 0x01)
Method (_RMV, 0, NotSerialized)
{
Return (0x01)
}

Name (_EJD, "\\_SB.PCI0.EHC2.HUBN.PRTN.PRT4")
}
...
}

Thanks,

Lukas
